For your consideration is this Model 1840 Ames Manufacturing Company NCO sword in very nice condition. The overall length of the sword is almost 39”. The single-edged blade itself measures 32”. The rust-free blade has not been cleaned and has a smooth finish.. There are no nicks on this blade and it retains its pointed tip. The ricasso is marked US / AHC / 1863 (the 3 is worn). The leather between the ricasso and the guard is present and in good condition. The brass hilt shows its age in the minor pitting and patina. The D-guard is marked with the inspector mark AHC. The D-guard, pommel, and knuckle bow are all marked “39” as well.

The original leather scabbard is in very good condition: there is one weak area near the middle (typical of its age), but is still very strong. The center seam is tight and shows no sign of splitting or re-working. The brass drag has the inspector marks of ADK (the A is very worn) and is securely mounted on the leather.. This scabbard also has its frog hook and is securely attached to the leather frog. The leather strap on the back of the frog is only sewed on one side. The frog’s back is marked with the name T.T. Nevine.

This specimen also has an important part of provenance included: it was part of the American Sword Collection of Philip Medicus, New York, purchased by Norm Flayderman at Wallingford Hall, Kennebunk, Maine.
